What is counseling and how is it different from talking to friends and family?
Counseling is a unique opportunity to have a trained professional help you think objectively about yourself and your struggles. A counselor helps you to develop coping skills, manage your emotional states and gain perspective. There may be ongoing or recent life complications that you need help getting through. We will work together to help you manage how you are feeling, thinking, and responding to life's difficulties.
What is the benefit of Online Therapy?
At times, it can be difficult to find a therapist you like, who is nearby and has the availability you need. Some people are in situations where it is difficult to leave the house. Online therapy helps take away some of the barriers to getting the help you need. The sessions are secure, confidential and HIPPA compliant. This ensures the same safe space as if you were in my office, but from the comfort of your own home.
